Video: Aidan Turner and Jenna Coleman describe play Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons
Watch Aidan Turner and Jenna Coleman describe their new play Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, which comes to the Harold Pinter Theatre in January 2023. Sam Steiner's 2015 drama follows a young couple who live in a society where the government has restricted individuals to a daily limit of 140 spoken words. Director Josie Rourke said "Sam’s play finds the humanity in how people and couples work through extreme situations. There is the potential for great joy, fun, reflection and healing in that." This hilarious and provocative two-hander runs at London's Harold Pinter Theatre in January 2023 for a limited 9-week season followed by dates in Manchester and Brighton. Aidan Turner returns to the West End following his acclaimed performance in 2018 in Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore; he is best known for the tv series' Poldark, Being Human and Peter Jackson's epic film trilogy The Hobbit. Jenna Coleman's most recent stage credits include Arthur Miller’s All My Sons at the Old Vic in 2019 opposite Sally Field, Bill Pullman and Colin Morgan. She first came to prominence in the tv series Victoria and has since garnered rave reviews for The Serpent and most recently The Sandman.  Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons is at the Harold Pinter theatre, London, from 18 January to 18 March. It then runs at Manchester Opera House (21-25 March) and Theatre Royal Brighton (28 March-1 April). Book tickets for Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons at the Harold Pinter Theatre
Aidan Turner and Jenna Coleman to star in Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons at the Harold Pinter Theatre
Aidan Turner and Jenna Coleman are to star in a West End revival of Sam Steiner's 2015 drama Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, directed by Josie Rourke. The two-hander will run at London's Harold Pinter Theatre in January 2023 before transferring to Manchester Opera House and Theatre Royal Brighton. The play shows the impact on one couple of a 'hush law' imposed by the government in which they are restricted to 140 words a day. Sam Steiner said: "Writing ‘Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons’ taught me how to be a playwright. The opportunity to revisit and grow the play all these years later and bring it to a larger audience with Josie, Aidan, Jenna and an alarmingly inspiring creative team is thrilling and confounding in equal measure. I hope it speaks to now in a way that I couldn’t have predicted then. And I hope to keep learning." Josie Rourke said: "I’m thrilled to be working with these electric actors on this brilliant play. I feel we are in a moment where - however indirectly - theatre might help us digest how we lived and changed through the extremes of the past few years. Sam’s play finds the humanity in how people and couples work through extreme situations. There is the potential for great joy, fun, reflection and healing in that. " Turner, best known for playing the title role of the BBC’s Poldark, starred earlier this year as a psychologist in ITV’s The Suspect; he appeared in a 2018 West End production of Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Coleman played the Doctor’s companion Clara in Doctor Who and starred in The Serpent, The Sandman and Victoria on tv: her stage credits include Arthur Miller’s All My Sons at the Old Vic in 2019 opposite Sally Field, Bill Pullman and Colin Morgan. Joining Rourke on the creative team are designer Robert Jones, lighting designer Aideen Malone, movement by Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster and costume designer by Kinnetia Isidore.  Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons is at the Harold Pinter theatre, London, from 18 January to 18 March. It then runs at Manchester Opera House (21-25 March) and Theatre Royal Brighton (28 March-1 April). Tickets for Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons now on sale.
